We live so fast...


To celebrate finally getting my replacement stylus here is the song I was about to rip when I found my little darlings had broken the old one. It’s the six minute dance mix of We Live So Fast which in its original form was on the Luxury Gap album. This is ripped from the b-side of the Temptation 12 inch single.

If you’re familiar with this you’ll know the chorus starts “We live so fast…motion, motion..”. Back in the 80’s a friend of mine thought they were singing “bullshit bullshit” and I made the mistake of telling that to one of my kids. He of course told the others and now every time they hear this they sing “bullshit” and I get dirty looks from the boss if she’s around. (Of course, I sing along if she’s not there)

For years, I always though they were singing 'Bullshit' instead of 'Motion'

Been giving Who'll Stop The Rain a whack lately..

The dance mix of Who'll Stop The Rain is on the same 12-inch single. I was going to upload that as well but Mediafire was playing up so I decided to save it for another day.

Late as always. Was this a drunken Friday post? Where's this week's contribution to moral decay?

Good song. I never noticed the bullshit lyric before although I see what you mean now that you mention it. As for the boss, my guess is that she tosses out dirty looks only because she can't sing like you and the boys.

I was so tired today I had an early evening nap and I've only just woken up (and started drinking). This reboot isn't going exactly as planned but there is some good stuff in the pipeline.

Yes, it sounds like there's a fair amount of "bullshit" in this song... *Laughs childishly*... I always used to wonder: "how do they get away with that??"

Have to say I like this B-side as much as I like "Temptation"... Though I much prefer the non-dancified 7" version... My first ever single!
